In this month’s first blog, we discussed our most popular immune system support injection, lipotropic B-12. With its combination of vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, and B-12 and essential amino acids our lipotropic B-12 injections are quite valuable for healthy immune system function.
As we come out of this oddest of springs and summers, it’s safe to say that we all could use a little boosting of our immune system to help keep us safe. As we head into fall, this applies to the seasonal flu, but it also applies to protecting yourself against COVID-19.
To help, we have two other injections beyond our lipotropic B-12 injections to boost your immunity heading into the cold winter months. They are thymosin alpha-1 and Glutathione.
For this second blog of September, let’s go through these two injections.
Thymosin alpha-1 is a 28-amino acid peptide that’s a powerful modulator of immunity and inflammation. It’s effective against both acute and chronic infections. It also is a promising supplemental treatment for a variety of immune-related diseases. TA-1 also inhibits viral replication. This can possibly make TA-1 an important potential treatment option for a variety of immune-related diseases
Glutathione is a tripeptide formed from the essential amino acids cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. This complete natural peptide is produced and used by every cell in the human body. It is often referred to as the “mother of all antioxidants.
Glutathione is also a key part of proper liver function. Maintaining proper levels helps your liver burn fat more efficiently. Once the body starts breaking down fat, glutathione will prevent reabsorption of toxins or any negative biproducts from the destroyed fat.
We need to supplement glutathione because the production of this essential element decreases by as much as 10 percent per decade. This makes supplemental injections a must, particularly for older patients.
Glutathione also acts synergistically with vitamin B-12. The tripeptide and vitamin actually bind together to combat B-12 depletion. This is a great combination for burning fat and having more energy, as well.
